Brian Wilson is arguably the greatest American composer of popular music in the rock era. Born and raised in Hawthorne, CA, Wilson formed the Beach Boys, with his two younger brothers, cousin Mike Love, and school friend Alan Jardine, and they became the most successful American rock band in history by performing his songs, which initially combined the rock urgency of Chuck Berry with the harmonies of the Four Freshmen. Wilson's musical imagination expanded during the '60s to the point of such remarkable works as "Good Vibrations," a chart-topping Beach Boys single of 1966.Brian Wilson was born June 20, 1942 and is an American pop musician, best known as a founding member of and the main producer, composer, and arranger for The Beach Boys.
Wilson's creativity reached its heights during the mid-1960s with songs like "Good Vibrations", the Pet Sounds album (which, according to Paul McCartney, heavily inspired The Beatles' Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band) and the unreleased SMiLE project. He also was the owner of a health food shop in Hollywood from summer 1969 till July 1970, a shop called the "Radiant Radish".
Following a breakdown as a result of mental illness and drug abuse in the 70's, he partially recovered to try a career as a solo artist in the 80's with limited success. His efforts were both encouraged AND hampered by the influence of his psychiatrist, Dr. Eugene Landy, and following extreme control over Brian's life, Wilson quit working with the Beach Boys on a regular basis after the release of The Beach Boys in 1985. Landy's illegal use of psychotropic drugs on Wilson and his interference in all of his affairs was finally legally ended by Brian's brother Carl. His final release as part of the group was on the 1996 album Stars and Stripes, a group collaboration with selected country music artists singing the lead vocals.
Brian married Melinda Ledbetter in 1995 and subsequently the couple adopted two girls, Daria and Delanie, and, in 2004, a son, Dylan. After considerable mental recovery, he released a second solo album, Imagination, in 1998 to widespread appreciation. Following this, he defeated his stage fright and started to play live for the first time in decades, to great success, going on to play the whole Pet Sounds album live on his tours of the USA, UK and Europe. He now tours regularly as a solo act with a large backing band including The Wondermints and in 2004 performed SMiLE live for the first time.
A new studio album "Getting In Over My Head" featuring collaborations with Elton John, Paul McCartney, Eric Clapton and his deceased brother Carl Wilson was released on 22 June, 2004. Eric Clapton played on the track "City Blues." A studio re-recording of his SMiLE opus is set for Sept. 28, 2004.Canadian rock group Barenaked Ladies paid tribute to the Beach Boy in their hit song "Brian Wilson," which makes reference to his 70's mental illness and Dr. Landy. In a weird twist, Brian Wilson actually covered this song for a live album.
